I believe you would call that red brindle. Is this the pup that stirred the production-of-blue argument?

Awww! I could just cuddle him!!!
I would just call that a brindle... but I'm not as well educated in the color schemes. "Super-cute Brindle Pup" That's what I would call him! :)

The color of that dog is a black brindle. It is a brown dog with black brindling. It makes no difference what color the parents were on what you call the pup. Color is the color of the dog not a breed or type of dog.
The ADBA can also call it Dark Fawn Brindle but all these dogs below are registered a black brindle.

This is Kaos who is a black brindle

This is Rage she is also black brindle

Here is a darker black brindle, Xena


This is red brindle, Tasha

Barca's brindle is very faint, but he is a red brindle


here is a link from the UKC that also shows a black brindle

each registry calls them something different IMO I would have considered them brown brindle but they have always been referred to on my paperwork as black brindle. Black brindle to me would seem like this, the dog on the left is black with brindle markings.

See, I call dogs Tasha's color chocolate brindles, because the masking color is chocolate. (Since a rednose dog can't produce black pigment.) I've heard some people say you call brindle after the maskng color (meaning any dog with black in the coat is going go be a black brindle). And others say you call it after the base coat color. Pretty sure the AKC would call that red brindle or even mahogany brindle, and they don't get rednose dogs (they call them liver if I'm not mistaken). Its all about as clear as mud.

What ever color the brindling is is what it is called. Like Lisa says that is a black brindle. If they were blue it is a blue brindle. There are no reverse brindles as brindle is always darker than the undercoat ( or whatever you would call the first layer lmao)

I have seen that too but this is what I call chocolate brindle but some would call it fawn. But her nose and highlights are chocolate.



and this is also a chocolate brindle. I have also seen very dark chocolate dogs called chocolate brindle. Like someone said above it's all clear as mud! lol

Cute puppy!!!

On the ADBA litter registration form it clearly states how to name the brindle colors, but AKC and UKC don't really have any explanation on how to do it, thus you get all sorts of things listed some that to me make no sense at all. There are so many shades of red, chocolate etc that it can also be a little confusing from that aspect. Add to that all the what I call extreme dilutes that don't really fit into any of the listed colors exactly and it makes for still more confusion. That is why I put up the color chart discussion. Though not everything is listed, it tends to help somewhat.

The nose is black and the coat has black stripes going through it. It's a black brindle.
